Central Lake District

The Lake District, England’s only true mountain area, derives its name from the spectacular natural lakes, or ‘meres’, which lie in green, glacially-sculpted valleys, surrounded by craggy peaks. This unique landscape, which has been nominated as one of National Geographic’s top ten ‘must-see’ destinations in the world, has an excellent network of well-maintained paths, which criss-cross the hillsides, give access to the mountain tops, and follow the lake shores, so we are able to offer itineraries for both ‘Easy’ and ‘Moderate’ grade tours.

 

Wooden footbridge in Langdale

 

The individual walks will depend upon the grade of the tour, however, they will all pass through the wonderful scenery of the valleys and lakeshores of the central Lake District, visiting Rydal, Langdale, the surging waterfall at Skelwith Bridge, and lonely Easedale Tarn. Memories of the breathtaking panorama from Loughrigg Terrace, and the superb view of Windermere and the Coniston Fells from Jenkin Crag will never be forgotten.
